    I wonder if the battery life will be better than the original Switch.

    Now the people on the fence about getting the switch...has no excuse...now in color! I bet the "Pro" switch model will be announced later this year. If so I will trade mine for that.

    wait...does they fix the analog drift problem? *IT DOES NOT HAVE TV MODE* wow... nope nvm what I said

    Basically like the 2DS, they removed some features which many didn't use much or any, so assuming it's capabilities are pretty much the same, with a lower price, it would be very successful!

    I forgot
    The comparison chart Nintendo released claims you get "up to 6 hours" of normal play time that "varies" depending on the software which is the same as the normal Switch. Though they then go on to claim that BOTW could get approximately 3 hours on a normal Switch, and 4 hours on a Lite Switch, so who the fuck knows? Probably a minimal battery life increase at best is my guess, since their "3 hours" claim for the original is BS anyways.

    why
    can't wait for the left analog stick to break and start drifting, with no way of replacing it outside of replacing the entire system or voiding a warranty

    This is really bad. All the modular Switch games are going to stop coming out, because developers won't want half a market on their game.

    Nintendo Switch*!

    *doesn't actually switch

    Of course, it having a smaller screen pretty much guarantees so. I think.

    Can't beat that $200 price for a holiday gift this season though. Will sell like gangbusters with Pokemon SS.

    I wonder how they will (if ever) be able to enter RCM.
